After penning a tear-jerking message of “thank you” on a receipt sent to the fast-food restaurant, a cancer-stricken Jollibee customer captured the hearts of netizens.
When she received a note written by one of their customers who happens to be ill with the condition, Mechelle Centurias, a manager at Jollibee Countrymall in Cebu City, claimed she “couldn’t hold my emotions.”
Mechelle said she initially mistook the note for one from a disgruntled customer, but was pleasantly delighted to discover that it was “a different ‘thank you’ message from someone who had his last Jollibee meal before his Chemotherapy for stage 4 cancer.”
The customer expressed his gratitude to the fast-food restaurant, revealing that his doctor had informed him he only had a few months to live.
The customer’s receipt had a handwritten message on the back that said:
“My Jollibee. Thank you sa 32 years. Karon akong last kaon nimo kay starting ugma, mag sugod na akong chemotherapy. Na koy stage 4 cancer. My doctor said that I have 3 months na lang. Once again, thank you my Jollibee. Until my next life. Aylabyu my Jollibee.”
Mechelle said she attempted to find the customer so she could thank him and support him, but she was told he had already left.
Despite this, she took to Facebook to congratulate and wish the client a speedy recovery.
“To this ‘brave someone’ who just prepared himself for a big fight, we pray for your recovery. The 3 months your doctor gave you can be 3 years or 3 decades or longer. God gives miracles. We just have to believe and strengthen our faith.
“I hope we’ve served you better and made you happy when you’re at Jollibee. Welabyu,” she added.
As of this writing, the said Facebook post has received over 6,800 reactions and over 2,400 shares.
